Going 50 Shades Darker with 99 Percent Hair Studio

Hair Care Tip #1: Shampoo Your Hair Adequately
Do you know that you are supposed to wash your hair on a daily basis if the climate is humid?
I have read blogs that warn against washing your hair daily as it can strip the hair of its natural oils. This is only true when the climate is dry i.e. during Winter. I have been washing my hair every other day for fear of stripping my hair of its natural oils and I reside in hot & humid Singapore. 😅 In addition to the climate, our environment is polluted with dust and haze. Hence it is important that we cleanse our hair & scalp on a daily basis. 😂
It is recommended that we shampoo our hair & rinse off with warm water to open the hair cuticle for dirt to be washed off. Do shampoo twice to ensure that our scalp & hair are adequately cleansed.
Waxy, Tacky & Greasy Hair Even After Shampooing?
Trust some of us have faced issues with our hair feeling waxy, tacky and greasy even after shampooing regularly. My hair used to feel that way for a few months and I’ve been trying hard to find a solution for it but to no avail.
I’ve tried the vinegar rinse & even washing my hair with dishwasher detergent but they still don’t work on me till I found the solution after visiting a neighborhood salon to get my hair shampooed after suffering for months…
Want to know the solution?
It is none other than using SUFFICIENT shampoo on your hair! I have really thick & long hair but I’ve been only using 2 pumps of shampoo to wash it. After visiting a salon, the hairstylist advised that I should actually use 4-5 pumps of shampoo for my hair instead. Shampooing with little / no shampoo may result in buildup of oils & dirt in my hair causing it to feel tacky and wax-coated. 😳
So to ensure that you are using adequate shampoo to wash your hair, you must be able to create a good lather with your shampoo. 🙆🏽
I was truly embarrassed when I discovered that I have not been using enough shampoo on my hair. 😣 So moral of the story is be frugal on other aspects but never on shampoo usage *LOL*
Hair Care Tip #2: Rinse with COLD Water After Conditioner
After shampooing, proceed to apply rinse-off hair conditioner to the ends of the hair before rinsing out with cold water. Cold water closes the hair cuticle, thus sealing the moisturizing properties of the hair conditioner. 😝
Hair Care Tip #3: Apply Hair Tonic
After washing your hair & towel drying it, apply some hair tonic onto your scalp to prevent premature hair fall. The Hair Tonic also helps to regulate oil production of the scalp.
Simply apply the hair tonic concentrating on the crown of your head and lightly rub the tonic into your scalp.
Hair Care Tip #4 Only Use a Wide-Tooth Comb on WET Hair!
Your hair is very brittle when it is wet. Hence you have to ensure to minimize the chances of tugging and breaking it whilst trying to loosen it up.
Using a wide-tooth comb or even the Tangle Teezer helps to detangle wet hair without damaging it.
Hair Care Tip #5 Use Heat-Protecting Spray
Last but not least, always use a heat-protecting spray before applying heat to your hair!
Not protecting your hair adequately before blow-drying / applying hair thongs can result in frizziness or even split ends.
